So, how do you buy prescription glasses online? At Fashion Eyewear it’s pretty simple. Firstly you choose your favourite designer eyewear. You can choose from a large collection of over 50 designer brands for both sunglasses and optical. Our pages are easy to navigate. You can shop our designer glasses brand or designer sunglasses brands separately. We also have designer reading glasses available which you will find under ‘designer glasses’, readily available in all reading powers.
We understand that it can be hard to decide on a brand, style or colour when buying your new eyewear. That’s why we have our ‘find your frame’ pages. These pages are split into styles so you can shop our transparent glasses, circle, retro, tortoiseshell or rimless all in one place. This may help you make a decision or maybe you already know what your after and only want to shop tortoiseshell glasses.
If you are still undecided or unsure that the glasses may suit your face shape we have our ‘virtual try-on’ – easy to use with your laptop, tablet or smartphone with a working camera. It’s really easy to try on your glasses from the comfort of your own home. Virtual shopping is easier than ever.
Once you have chosen your new frames you can either add them straight to your bag ready to purchase or add your prescription at our checkout. Our prescription process is simple to use too. First pick what you want to use your glasses for and then pick your lenses type: Single Vision or Varifocal
Single Vision – These lenses include distance, reading, fashion, computer or occupational.
Varifocal – These lenses combine your distance, mid-distance and reading prescriptions into one lens. This lens is perfect if you often carry around more than one pair of glasses.
Once you have chosen your lens type you can choose from our advanced optical brands. All eyewear comes with a choice of lenses from Nikon, Essilor and our own optician curated Fashion Eyewear Packages.
If you are buying a Ray-Ban, Oakley or Maui Jim pair of glasses or sunglasses you will also get a choice of their own brand lenses to add to your frame.
The bronze package is a high-quality lens at an affordable price which you can add to any of our eyewear range. This is our standard lens, available with two coatings: Scratch resistant and Anti-reflection. This is suitable for a standard prescription but not if you have a complex prescription.
